Warm welcome

I love sitting out on our front porch but have never had comfy chairs so we could really relax out there. Being on the ever present budget I decided to "re-vamp" existing items.

I took 2 chairs from our existing patio set and gave them a fresh coat of paint. I have had a little iron table forever and it never really had a home. After topping that with a fresh coat it looks nice and new!

So here's what we had before. This bench was literally left in the yard when we bought the house. I painted it black all those years ago and that's how it's been. But now it's like this...

I got the cushions for a major steal at Target - a set of 2 for $9.99! I love the little splash of color! I love to sit out and watch the world go by. It's the perfect spot to watch a thunderstorm as well!!


  1. Love the new look and the cushions are super cute!

  2. Great job Katy. So what did you do with the bench?

  3. I gave it to a friend... AKA Recycled it :-)

  4. wow, thost look fantastic! great job! Those chairs have a whole new life to them now. I was at the Brimfield antique fair about a week ago and saw a few outdoor chair's just like yours (from the 1950's I believe) and they were going for over $200/each!! good thing you held onto yours!

  5. Very nice makeover. I'm visiting from Living with Lindsay With Lindsay. Thanks for leaving a nice comment on my guest post. I wanted to come over and check out your makeover, too. Great job!


I can't hear you!! Unless you leave a message. Holler back now!
